Incorporating a POS Display for the Holidays

Designing and creating a POS holiday display is often a successful tool in closing a sale. POS displays are influential because they attract consumers with their look and visionary style. They can be as simple as table-top pieces showcasing smaller items near the register to eye-catching floor models that grab the attention from far and near. Often times POS displays also showcase a promotion, rebate, or limited-time offer. Holiday POS displays are very POSular for advertising new or limited holiday flavors of food and beverages. This sales method is repeatedly profitable for impulse buying, as 70%-75% of consumer decisions are made while shopping. Utilizing displays is an easier way to feature a product and brand that will not only sell to consumers, but will increase the likelihood that brand will stick with them.
